Connect Cafe Ministry held its 3rd Newcomers Welcome Luncheon (after COVID-19) on June 11, 2023. The fun-filled event was attended by 65 people in total, including 36 newcomers, pastors/elders & spouses, members and staff. The personal "Connect Stories" touched the hearts of many who were in attendance. As well, the Bingo and personal scavenger hunt games were among the favourite activities during the afternoon event. Almost all our newcomers walked away with door prizes, which were generously donated by Starbucks, White Spot and Romer's Burger Bar. The Connect Cafe team has taken it up a notch by carting the Japanese bento meals and the scrumptious desserts made by our very own FLC bakers, to seated guests "Dim Sum" style, which made it more convenient and efficient for everyone.
We give thanks and praise to GOD for all HIS provisions of volunteers, food, and a great venue to welcome our newcomers. One common theme noted from the feedback received from the newcomers was how "they felt so welcomed and connected with FLC members as well as other newcomers." We pray that God will bless and fill our newcomers with faith, hope and love. To God be the glory and honour!
